  • Drowning in our tears :'(

    My whole family watches the show religiously (self, hubby, 2 teen dtrs) & let me just say, the tears were flowing quite freely during this ep! We have all grown to love Bobby like family and to lose him is just <3breaking!!! Cannot BELIEVE he's gone.
  • I want Bobby Back

    Please, I want Bobby Back in show
  • Touching and Moving

    This show had me tearing up and thats rare. Great writing to show Bobby life and pains and how much he loves the Dean and Sam and how much they love him. As the reaper tries to take his life Bobby must give Dean and Sam a message and to do that he must go through every painful memory just to stay ahead of the reaper. It shows how incredible Bobby really is and I consider him to be a masterpiece when it comes to a character. This show will have you crying and show you what love really is.moreless
  • This episode has made me cry.

    It's been a while since I've last been crying watching Supernatural. This episode was moving, beautiful and very, very sad. Bobby reliving some of the most painful stations of his life was done in an amazing way and we got to know him better, than we had ever known him before. It was touching to see, how much Sam and Dean meant to him and how he managed to give Dean the chance to be a child for a change, contradicting John by that. It was great to have Rufus back, supporting him on his difficult journey. To see Sam and Dean at the hospital was heartbreaking. Dean (totally understandably) almost losing it and Sam putting on a brave face even though he's not suffering any less.

    I'm not too sure that this has been the last, we've seen of Bobby, but if it should have been, it would have been a worthy farewell.moreless
  • You gotta love Bobby

    Bobby is as centric as San or Dean, this episode was way out of Supernatural's comfort zone, but it was still moving, entertaining and a joy to watch, there's a reason why Supernatural is my favorite show.

    • Bobby: Karen?
      Karen Singer: You were expecting Farrah Fawcett?
      Bobby: No. She always calls first.

    • Rufus: Seriously, though, Bobby, how come...?
      Bobby: Dog with a bone, Rufus.
      Rufus: No, I really want to know, man--why no kids?
      Bobby: Ain't that deep. Dad was a mean drunk. I figured I'd be just like him. And, hey, look, I was right. No sense passing on the legacy.
      Rufus: You're too hard on yourself. You're more of a cranky drunk.

    • Dean: We're coming for you. And not just to hurt you--to kill you. You understand me?
      Dick Roman: Come on, Dean, I can't be killed.
      Dean: You're gonna wish you could, then.
      Dick Roman: (laughs) That's some conviction. You'd really crush it on the motivational circuit.
      Dean: You're either laughing because you're scared or you're laughing because you're stupid. I'll see you soon, Dick.

    • Reaper: Bobby... you've helped. You got handed a small, unremarkable life, and you did something with it. Most men like you die of liver disease, watching Barney Miller reruns. You've done enough. Believe me.
      Bobby: I don't care.
      Reaper: Why?
      Bobby: Because they're my boys.

    • Bobby: Well that's a load of crap. Who the hell were you to say?
      Ed Singer: I'm your father. And you show your father respect.
      Bobby: The day he deserves it. You drunken bully. Punching women and kids, is that what they call fatherhood in your day?
      Ed Singer: You deserved it. Believe me, you were nothing but ungrateful.
      Bobby: I was a kid! Kids ain't supposed to be grateful. They're supposed to eat your food and break your heart, ya selfish dick! You died and I was still so afraid I'd turn into you, I never even had kids of my own.
      Ed Singer: Good. You break everything you touch.
      Bobby: Well, as fate would have it, I adopted two boys and they grew up great. They grew up heroes. So you can go to hell!

    • Dean: All right, scoot, jerkface. Show your elders some respect.
      Sam: You scoot, asshat.
      Dean: Did we get licorice?
      Sam: No, we did not get licorice. We got good snacks. Licorice is disgusting.
      Dean: I'm sorry, I didn't quite understand that, uh, Mr. "Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich."
      Sam: I stand by that sandwich. Nobody likes licorice. It's--it's made of dirt.
      Dean: It is a classic movie food. It's right up there with popcorn.
      Sam: Popcorn?
      Dean: Yeah.
      Sam: You're out of your mind.
      Dean: What, it's like little chewy pieces of heaven.
